Sound problems

Postby flycharlles on Mon May 11, 2009 4:55 pm

Hi there,
I've just got back to Linux Mint and I've installed Linux Mint 7 to my new laptop, a HP Pavilion DV2. But I can't get the sound or sound card to work . I've tried everything possble to make it to work. I've tried Sabayon and the sound worked out of the box.

In here is the link for the ultra portable http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=4778
The drivers http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3927453

* My sound card is IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC Driver

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You have to tell us more facts.
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (to avoid misunderstanding - the first character is a minor L and you copy by marking with the mouse and then right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important
This is a standard answer so it may not be fully applicable to your situation

This is as you see Intel HDA so the standard solution for HDA will probably work

You change model to what ever you have or auto
You may have to try different "models" to get it to work - brand or model (sometimes very specific model)
